May 6, 2014 - King James Version
Acts 17:1-15
 1 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:  2 And Paul, as his manner was , went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,  3 Opening and alleging , that Christ must needs have suffered , and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.  4 And some of them believed , and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.  5 But the Jews which believed not , moved with envy , took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company , and set all the city on an uproar , and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.  6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying , These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;  7 Whom Jason hath received : and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.  8 And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.  9 And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go . 10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.  11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily , whether those things were so.  12 Therefore many of them believed ; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.  13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.  14 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still . 15 And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed , they departed .
Judges 6:1-40
 1 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.  2 And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds.  3 And so it was, when Israel had sown , that the Midianites came up , and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them; 4 And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass.  5 For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land to destroy it. 6 And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the LORD.  7 And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD because of the Midianites,  8 That the LORD sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage;  9 And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land;  10 And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell : but ye have not obeyed my voice.  11 And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites.  12 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.  13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying , Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.  14 And the LORD looked upon him, and said , Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? 15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.  16 And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.  17 And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me. 18 Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And he said , I will tarry until thou come again . 19 And Gideon went in , and made ready a kid , and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it. 20 And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so. 21 Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight.  22 And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said , Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face.  23 And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die . 24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.  25 And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it: 26 And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down . 27 Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the LORD had said unto him: and so it was, because he feared his father's household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night.  28 And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast down , and the grove was cut down that was by it, and the second bullock was offered upon the altar that was built . 29 And they said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they enquired and asked , they said , Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing.  30 Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die : because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it. 31 And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar.  32 Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying , Let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar.  33 Then all the Midianites and the Amalekites and the children of the east were gathered together, and went over , and pitched in the valley of Jezreel.  34 But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abiezer was gathered after him. 35 And he sent messengers throughout all Manasseh; who also was gathered after him: and he sent messengers unto Asher, and unto Zebulun, and unto Naphtali; and they came up to meet them. 36 And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said , 37 Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said . 38 And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together , and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water.  39 And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove , I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew.  40 And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground.
Job 36:1-33
 1 Elihu also proceeded , and said , 2 Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf. 3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker . 4 For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee. 5 Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.  6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.  7 He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted . 8 And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;  9 Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded . 10 He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.  11 If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.  12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.  13 But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them. 14 They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.  15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.  16 Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.  17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee. 18 Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee. 19 Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength.  20 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place. 21 Take heed , regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.  22 Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? 23 Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say , Thou hast wrought iniquity?  24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold . 25 Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off.  26 Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.  27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: 28 Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.  29 Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?  30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea.  31 For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance . 32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt . 33 The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour .

Acts 16:16-40
 16 And it came to pass , as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying : 17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried , saying , These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.  18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved , turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.  19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone , they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,  20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying , These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,  21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive , neither to observe , being Romans.  22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. 23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:  24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.  25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed , and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.  26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken : and immediately all the doors were opened , and every one's bands were loosed . 27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open , he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled . 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying , Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.  29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in , and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,  30 And brought them out, and said , Sirs, what must I do to be saved ? 31 And they said , Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved , and thy house.  32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.  33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes ; and was baptized , he and all his, straightway.  34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them , and rejoiced , believing in God with all his house.  35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying , Let those men go . 36 And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul , The magistrates have sent to let you go : now therefore depart , and go in peace.  37 But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans , and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out . 38 And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared , when they heard that they were Romans.  39 And they came and besought them, and brought them out , and desired them to depart out of the city.  40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed .
Judges 4:1-24
 1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD, when Ehud was dead . 2 And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host was Sisera, which dwelt in Harosheth of the Gentiles.  3 And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel.  4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.  5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.  6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded , saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?  7 And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand.  8 And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go : but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go . 9 And she said , I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose , and went with Barak to Kedesh.  10 And Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh; and he went up with ten thousand men at his feet: and Deborah went up with him. 11 Now Heber the Kenite, which was of the children of Hobab the father in law of Moses, had severed himself from the Kenites, and pitched his tent unto the plain of Zaanaim, which is by Kedesh.  12 And they shewed Sisera that Barak the son of Abinoam was gone up to mount Tabor.  13 And Sisera gathered together all his chariots, even nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that were with him, from Harosheth of the Gentiles unto the river of Kishon.  14 And Deborah said unto Barak, Up ; for this is the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: is not the LORD gone out before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him. 15 And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet.  16 But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the edge of the sword; and there was not a man left . 17 Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite.  18 And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in , my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into the tent, she covered him with a mantle.  19 And he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to drink ; for I am thirsty . And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him drink , and covered him. 20 Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say , Is there any man here? that thou shalt say , No. 21 Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary . So he died . 22 And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come , and I will shew thee the man whom thou seekest . And when he came into her tent, behold, Sisera lay dead , and the nail was in his temples.  23 So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel.  24 And the hand of the children of Israel prospered , and prevailed against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan.
Judges 5:1-31
 1 Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying , 2 Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the people willingly offered themselves. 3 Hear , O ye kings; give ear , O ye princes ; I, even I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.  4 LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled , and the heavens dropped , the clouds also dropped water.  5 The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel.  6 In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied , and the travellers walked through byways . 7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased , they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose , that I arose a mother in Israel.  8 They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?  9 My heart is toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the LORD.  10 Speak , ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment, and walk by the way.  11 They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates.  12 Awake , awake , Deborah: awake , awake , utter a song: arise , Barak, and lead thy captivity captive , thou son of Abinoam.  13 Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty.  14 Out of Ephraim was there a root of them against Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down governors , and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer . 15 And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; even Issachar, and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley. For the divisions of Reuben there were great thoughts of heart.  16 Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.  17 Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships? Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches.  18 Zebulun and Naphtali were a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field.  19 The kings came and fought , then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money.  20 They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.  21 The river of Kishon swept them away , that ancient river, the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength.  22 Then were the horsehoofs broken by the means of the pransings, the pransings of their mighty ones.  23 Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty.  24 Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent.  25 He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish.  26 She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples.  27 At her feet he bowed , he fell , he lay down : at her feet he bowed , he fell : where he bowed , there he fell down dead . 28 The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming ? why tarry the wheels of his chariots?  29 Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself, 30 Have they not sped ? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil?  31 So let all thine enemies perish , O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.
Job 35:1-16
 1 Elihu spake moreover, and said , 2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst , My righteousness is more than God's?  3 For thou saidst , What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?  4 I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee. 5 Look unto the heavens, and see ; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou. 6 If thou sinnest , what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied , what doest thou unto him? 7 If thou be righteous , what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand?  8 Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.  9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry : they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.  10 But none saith , Where is God my maker , who giveth songs in the night;  11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?  12 There they cry , but none giveth answer , because of the pride of evil men.  13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it. 14 Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him. 15 But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:  16 Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.

Acts 16:1-15
 1 Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold , a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father was a Greek:  2 Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.  3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.  4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep , that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.  5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily . 6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,  7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.  8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.  9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him , saying , Come over into Macedonia, and help us.  10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.  11 Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;  12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.  13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made ; and we sat down , and spake unto the women which resorted thither. 14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened , that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.  15 And when she was baptized , and her household, she besought us, saying , If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
Judges 2:1-23
 1 And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said , I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said , I will never break my covenant with you. 2 And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this? 3 Wherefore I also said , I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you. 4 And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD spake these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept . 5 And they called the name of that place Bochim: and they sacrificed there unto the LORD.  6 And when Joshua had let the people go , the children of Israel went every man unto his inheritance to possess the land.  7 And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.  8 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died , being an hundred and ten years old.  9 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash.  10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.  11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:  12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger . 13 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.  14 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies . 15 Whithersoever they went out , the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had said , and as the LORD had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed . 16 Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges , which delivered them out of the hand of those that spoiled them. 17 And yet they would not hearken unto their judges , but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in , obeying the commandments of the LORD; but they did not so. 18 And when the LORD raised them up judges , then the LORD was with the judge , and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge : for it repented the LORD because of their groanings by reason of them that oppressed them and vexed them. 19 And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that they returned , and corrupted themselves more than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them, and to bow down unto them; they ceased not from their own doings, nor from their stubborn way.  20 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and he said , Because that this people hath transgressed my covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto my voice;  21 I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died : 22 That through them I may prove Israel, whether they will keep the way of the LORD to walk therein, as their fathers did keep it, or not. 23 Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them out hastily; neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua.
Judges 3:1-31
 1 Now these are the nations which the LORD left , to prove Israel by them, even as many of Israel as had not known all the wars of Canaan;  2 Only that the generations of the children of Israel might know , to teach them war, at the least such as before knew nothing thereof; 3 Namely, five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath.  4 And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.  5 And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:  6 And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.  7 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves.  8 Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years.  9 And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.  10 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim.  11 And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died . 12 And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.  13 And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees . 14 So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.  15 But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer , Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded : and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.  16 But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.  17 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.  18 And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.  19 But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said , I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said , Keep silence . And all that stood by him went out from him. 20 And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said , I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.  21 And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:  22 And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out . 23 Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them. 24 When he was gone out , his servants came ; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked , they said , Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber.  25 And they tarried till they were ashamed : and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth.  26 And Ehud escaped while they tarried , and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath.  27 And it came to pass, when he was come , that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them. 28 And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over . 29 And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man.  30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.  31 And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel.
Job 34:1-37
 1 Furthermore Elihu answered and said , 2 Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge . 3 For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat . 4 Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.  5 For Job hath said , I am righteous : and God hath taken away my judgment.  6 Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression.  7 What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?  8 Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.  9 For he hath said , It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.  10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.  11 For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.  12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly , neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.  13 Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world?  14 If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;  15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust.  16 If now thou hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words.  17 Shall even he that hateth right govern ? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?  18 Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly?  19 How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.  20 In a moment shall they die , and the people shall be troubled at midnight , and pass away : and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.  21 For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.  22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 23 For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.  24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. 25 Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed . 26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others; 27 Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:  28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.  29 When he giveth quietness , who then can make trouble ? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only:  30 That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.  31 Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more: 32 That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more. 33 Should it be according to thy mind? he will recompense it, whether thou refuse , or whether thou choose ; and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest . 34 Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me. 35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom . 36 My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.  37 For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.

Acts 15:22-41
 22 Then pleased it the apostles and elders, with the whole church, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; namely, Judas surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren:  23 And they wrote letters by them after this manner; The apostles and elders and brethren send greeting unto the brethren which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia:  24 Forasmuch as we have heard , that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying , Ye must be circumcised , and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment : 25 It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,  26 Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  27 We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell you the same things by mouth.  28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;  29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well . 30 So when they were dismissed , they came to Antioch: and when they had gathered the multitude together , they delivered the epistle:  31 Which when they had read , they rejoiced for the consolation.  32 And Judas and Silas, being prophets also themselves, exhorted the brethren with many words, and confirmed them. 33 And after they had tarried there a space, they were let go in peace from the brethren unto the apostles.  34 Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still . 35 Paul also and Barnabas continued in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others also.  36 And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas , Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they do . 37 And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.  38 But Paul thought not good to take him with them , who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.  39 And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other : and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;  40 And Paul chose Silas, and departed , being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.  41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.
Judges 1:1-36
 1 Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying , Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them? 2 And the LORD said , Judah shall go up : behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.  3 And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went with him. 4 And Judah went up ; and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men.  5 And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites.  6 But Adonibezek fled ; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes.  7 And Adonibezek said , Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off , gathered their meat under my table: as I have done , so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died . 8 Now the children of Judah had fought against Jerusalem, and had taken it, and smitten it with the edge of the sword, and set the city on fire.  9 And afterward the children of Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites, that dwelt in the mountain, and in the south, and in the valley.  10 And Judah went against the Canaanites that dwelt in Hebron: (now the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba:) and they slew Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai.  11 And from thence he went against the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher:  12 And Caleb said , He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.  13 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.  14 And it came to pass, when she came to him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she lighted from off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wilt thou? 15 And she said unto him, Give me a blessing: for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And Caleb gave her the upper springs and the nether springs.  16 And the children of the Kenite, Moses' father in law , went up out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which lieth in the south of Arad; and they went and dwelt among the people.  17 And Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the Canaanites that inhabited Zephath, and utterly destroyed it. And the name of the city was called Hormah.  18 Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof. 19 And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.  20 And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said : and he expelled thence the three sons of Anak.  21 And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day.  22 And the house of Joseph, they also went up against Bethel: and the LORD was with them. 23 And the house of Joseph sent to descry Bethel. (Now the name of the city before was Luz.)  24 And the spies saw a man come forth out of the city, and they said unto him, Shew us, we pray thee, the entrance into the city, and we will shew thee mercy.  25 And when he shewed them the entrance into the city, they smote the city with the edge of the sword; but they let go the man and all his family.  26 And the man went into the land of the Hittites, and built a city, and called the name thereof Luz: which is the name thereof unto this day.  27 Neither did Manasseh drive out the inhabitants of Bethshean and her towns, nor Taanach and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Ibleam and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns: but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.  28 And it came to pass, when Israel was strong , that they put the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly drive them out . 29 Neither did Ephraim drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer; but the Canaanites dwelt in Gezer among them. 30 Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, nor the inhabitants of Nahalol; but the Canaanites dwelt among them, and became tributaries.  31 Neither did Asher drive out the inhabitants of Accho, nor the inhabitants of Zidon, nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of Aphik, nor of Rehob:  32 But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: for they did not drive them out . 33 Neither did Naphtali drive out the inhabitants of Bethshemesh, nor the inhabitants of Bethanath; but he dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: nevertheless the inhabitants of Bethshemesh and of Bethanath became tributaries unto them. 34 And the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the mountain: for they would not suffer them to come down to the valley:  35 But the Amorites would dwell in mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed , so that they became tributaries.  36 And the coast of the Amorites was from the going up to Akrabbim, from the rock, and upward.
Job 33:1-33
 1 Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words.  2 Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.  3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly . 4 The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life . 5 If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up . 6 Behold, I am according to thy wish in God's stead: I also am formed out of the clay.  7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid , neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee. 8 Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying, 9 I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me. 10 Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counteth me for his enemy , 11 He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.  12 Behold, in this thou art not just : I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.  13 Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.  14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;  16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,  17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.  18 He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.  19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain: 20 So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.  21 His flesh is consumed away , that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out . 22 Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers . 23 If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter , one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:  24 Then he is gracious unto him, and saith , Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.  25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:  26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.  27 He looketh upon men, and if any say , I have sinned , and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not; 28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.  29 Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,  30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.  31 Mark well , O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace , and I will speak . 32 If thou hast any thing to say, answer me: speak , for I desire to justify thee. 33 If not, hearken unto me: hold thy peace , and I shall teach thee wisdom.

Acts 15:1-21
 1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved . 2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.  3 And being brought on their way by the church, they passed through Phenice and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles: and they caused great joy unto all the brethren.  4 And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received of the church, and of the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them.  5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed , saying , That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.  6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.  7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up , and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe . 8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness , giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;  9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.  10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear ? 11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved , even as they.  12 Then all the multitude kept silence , and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.  13 And after they had held their peace , James answered , saying , Men and brethren, hearken unto me:  14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.  15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written , 16 After this I will return , and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down ; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up : 17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called , saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.  18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.  19 Wherefore my sentence is , that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:  20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.  21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Joshua 23:1-16
 1 And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed old and stricken in age.  2 And Joshua called for all Israel, and for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges , and for their officers , and said unto them, I am old and stricken in age:  3 And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God is he that hath fought for you. 4 Behold , I have divided unto you by lot these nations that remain , to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off , even unto the great sea westward . 5 And the LORD your God, he shall expel them from before you, and drive them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess their land, as the LORD your God hath promised unto you. 6 Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;  7 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: 8 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.  9 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.  10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you. 11 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.  12 Else if ye do in any wise go back , and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: 13 Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you. 14 And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof 15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you. 16 When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.
Joshua 24:1-33
 1 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges , and for their officers ; and they presented themselves before God.  2 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.  3 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.  4 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.  5 I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out . 6 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.  7 And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.  8 And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you. 9 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you: 10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still : so I delivered you out of his hand.  11 And ye went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.  12 And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.  13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour , and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat . 14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.  15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve ; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell : but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.  16 And the people answered and said , God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;  17 For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went , and among all the people through whom we passed : 18 And the LORD drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the LORD; for he is our God.  19 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.  20 If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt , and consume you, after that he hath done you good . 21 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the LORD.  22 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said , We are witnesses.  23 Now therefore put away , said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel.  24 And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve , and his voice will we obey . 25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.  26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.  27 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.  28 So Joshua let the people depart , every man unto his inheritance.  29 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died , being an hundred and ten years old.  30 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.  31 And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel.  32 And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.  33 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died ; and they buried him in a hill that pertained to Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim.
Job 32:1-22
 1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.  2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled , because he justified himself rather than God.  3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled , because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.  4 Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. 5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled . 6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said , I am young , and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid , and durst not shew you mine opinion.  7 I said , Days should speak , and multitude of years should teach wisdom.  8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding . 9 Great men are not always wise : neither do the aged understand judgment.  10 Therefore I said , Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion.  11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say.  12 Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:  13 Lest ye should say , We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down , not man.  14 Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches.  15 They were amazed , they answered no more: they left off speaking.  16 When I had waited , (for they spake not, but stood still , and answered no more;) 17 I said, I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion.  18 For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me. 19 Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent ; it is ready to burst like new bottles.  20 I will speak , that I may be refreshed : I will open my lips and answer . 21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.  22 For I know not to give flattering titles ; in so doing my maker would soon take me away .

Acts 14:1-28
 1 And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake , that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed . 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil affected against the brethren.  3 Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.  4 But the multitude of the city was divided : and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.  5 And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews with their rulers, to use them despitefully , and to stone them,  6 They were ware of it, and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about:  7 And there they preached the gospel . 8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked : 9 The same heard Paul speak : who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed , 10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked . 11 And when the people saw what Paul had done , they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.  12 And they called Barnabas , Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.  13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.  14 Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out , 15 And saying , Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein : 16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.  17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good , and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.  18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.  19 And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead . 20 Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up , and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.  21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,  22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.  23 And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed . 24 And after they had passed throughout Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia.  25 And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia:  26 And thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled . 27 And when they were come , and had gathered the church together , they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.  28 And there they abode long time with the disciples.
Joshua 22:1-34
 1 Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh,  2 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you: 3 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.  4 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren, as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan.  5 But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.  6 So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away : and they went unto their tents.  7 Now to the one half of the tribe of Manasseh Moses had given possession in Bashan: but unto the other half thereof gave Joshua among their brethren on this side Jordan westward. And when Joshua sent them away also unto their tents, then he blessed them, 8 And he spake unto them, saying , Return with much riches unto your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver, and with gold, and with brass, and with iron, and with very much raiment: divide the spoil of your enemies with your brethren.  9 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh returned , and departed from the children of Israel out of Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan, to go unto the country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, whereof they were possessed , according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.  10 And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that are in the land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar to see to.  11 And the children of Israel heard say , Behold, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh have built an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the borders of Jordan, at the passage of the children of Israel.  12 And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at Shiloh, to go up to war against them. 13 And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, into the land of Gilead, Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest,  14 And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince throughout all the tribes of Israel; and each one was an head of the house of their fathers among the thousands of Israel.  15 And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of Gilead, and they spake with them, saying , 16 Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?  17 Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,  18 But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD? and it will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow he will be wroth with the whole congregation of Israel.  19 Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession be unclean, then pass ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD, wherein the LORD'S tabernacle dwelleth , and take possession among us: but rebel not against the LORD, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the LORD our God.  20 Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity.  21 Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh answered , and said unto the heads of the thousands of Israel,  22 The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth , and Israel he shall know ; if it be in rebellion, or if in transgression against the LORD, (save us not this day,)  23 That we have built us an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering, or if to offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself require it; 24 And if we have not rather done it for fear of this thing, saying , In time to come your children might speak unto our children, saying , What have ye to do with the LORD God of Israel?  25 For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD.  26 Therefore we said , Let us now prepare to build us an altar, not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:  27 But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.  28 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say again, Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made , not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between us and you. 29 God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn this day from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for meat offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the altar of the LORD our God that is before his tabernacle.  30 And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the congregation and heads of the thousands of Israel which were with him, heard the words that the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh spake , it pleased them. 31 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the children of Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD is among us, because ye have not committed this trespass against the LORD: now ye have delivered the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD.  32 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes, returned from the children of Reuben, and from the children of Gad, out of the land of Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to the children of Israel, and brought them word again . 33 And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the children of Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against them in battle, to destroy the land wherein the children of Reuben and Gad dwelt . 34 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.
Job 31:1-40
 1 I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?  2 For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high?  3 Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?  4 Doth not he see my ways, and count all my steps?  5 If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot hath hasted to deceit;  6 Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine integrity.  7 If my step hath turned out of the way, and mine heart walked after mine eyes, and if any blot hath cleaved to mine hands;  8 Then let me sow , and let another eat ; yea, let my offspring be rooted out . 9 If mine heart have been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbour's door;  10 Then let my wife grind unto another, and let others bow down upon her. 11 For this is an heinous crime; yea, it is an iniquity to be punished by the judges.  12 For it is a fire that consumeth to destruction, and would root out all mine increase.  13 If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant, when they contended with me; 14 What then shall I do when God riseth up ? and when he visiteth , what shall I answer him? 15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?  16 If I have withheld the poor from their desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail ; 17 Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof; 18 (For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I have guided her from my mother's womb;)  19 If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without covering;  20 If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;  21 If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate:  22 Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade, and mine arm be broken from the bone.  23 For destruction from God was a terror to me, and by reason of his highness I could not endure. 24 If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence;  25 If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had gotten much;  26 If I beheld the sun when it shined , or the moon walking in brightness;  27 And my heart hath been secretly enticed , or my mouth hath kissed my hand:  28 This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should have denied the God that is above.  29 If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him: 30 Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.  31 If the men of my tabernacle said not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied . 32 The stranger did not lodge in the street: but I opened my doors to the traveller.  33 If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:  34 Did I fear a great multitude, or did the contempt of families terrify me, that I kept silence , and went not out of the door?  35 Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book.  36 Surely I would take it upon my shoulder, and bind it as a crown to me. 37 I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near unto him. 38 If my land cry against me, or that the furrows likewise thereof complain ; 39 If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:  40 Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle instead of barley. The words of Job are ended .

Acts 13:26-52
 26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent . 27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not , nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him. 28 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain . 29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre.  30 But God raised him from the dead:  31 And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.  32 And we declare unto you glad tidings , how that the promise which was made unto the fathers,  33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again ; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.  34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise , I will give you the sure mercies of David.  35 Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.  36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep , and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:  37 But he, whom God raised again , saw no corruption.  38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:  39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.  40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;  41 Behold , ye despisers, and wonder , and perish : for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe , though a man declare it unto you.  42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.  43 Now when the congregation was broken up , many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.  44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.  45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming . 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold , and said , It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you , and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo , we turn to the Gentiles.  47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.  48 And when the Gentiles heard this , they were glad , and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed . 49 And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region.  50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.  51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.  52 And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.
Joshua 20:1-9
 1 The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying , 2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying , Appoint out for you cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:  3 That the slayer that killeth any person unawares and unwittingly may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge from the avenger of blood.  4 And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them. 5 And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall not deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his neighbour unwittingly , and hated him not beforetime . 6 And he shall dwell in that city, until he stand before the congregation for judgment, and until the death of the high priest that shall be in those days: then shall the slayer return , and come unto his own city, and unto his own house, unto the city from whence he fled . 7 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, in the mountain of Judah.  8 And on the other side Jordan by Jericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain out of the tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.  9 These were the cities appointed for all the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that whosoever killeth any person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation.
Joshua 21:1-45
 1 Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;  2 And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying , The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us cities to dwell in , with the suburbs thereof for our cattle.  3 And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their suburbs.  4 And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and the children of Aaron the priest, which were of the Levites, had by lot out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of Simeon, and out of the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities.  5 And the rest of the children of Kohath had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities.  6 And the children of Gershon had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out of the tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan, thirteen cities.  7 The children of Merari by their families had out of the tribe of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe of Zebulun, twelve cities.  8 And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.  9 And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which are here mentioned by name,  10 Which the children of Aaron, being of the families of the Kohathites, who were of the children of Levi, had: for theirs was the first lot.  11 And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the suburbs thereof round about it. 12 But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession.  13 Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer ; and Libnah with her suburbs,  14 And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,  15 And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,  16 And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, and Bethshemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two tribes.  17 And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs, Geba with her suburbs,  18 Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four cities.  19 All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were thirteen cities with their suburbs.  20 And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.  21 For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim, to be a city of refuge for the slayer ; and Gezer with her suburbs,  22 And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Bethhoron with her suburbs; four cities.  23 And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs, Gibbethon with her suburbs,  24 Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon with her suburbs; four cities.  25 And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her suburbs, and Gathrimmon with her suburbs; two cities.  26 All the cities were ten with their suburbs for the families of the children of Kohath that remained . 27 And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the Levites, out of the other half tribe of Manasseh they gave Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer ; and Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities.  28 And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with her suburbs, Dabareh with her suburbs,  29 Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim with her suburbs; four cities.  30 And out of the tribe of Asher, Mishal with her suburbs, Abdon with her suburbs,  31 Helkath with her suburbs, and Rehob with her suburbs; four cities.  32 And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer ; and Hammothdor with her suburbs, and Kartan with her suburbs; three cities.  33 All the cities of the Gershonites according to their families were thirteen cities with their suburbs.  34 And unto the families of the children of Merari, the rest of the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with her suburbs, and Kartah with her suburbs,  35 Dimnah with her suburbs, Nahalal with her suburbs; four cities.  36 And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with her suburbs, and Jahazah with her suburbs, 37 Kedemoth with her suburbs, and Mephaath with her suburbs; four cities.  38 And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer ; and Mahanaim with her suburbs,  39 Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with her suburbs; four cities in all. 40 So all the cities for the children of Merari by their families, which were remaining of the families of the Levites, were by their lot twelve cities.  41 All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the children of Israel were forty and eight cities with their suburbs.  42 These cities were every one with their suburbs round about them: thus were all these cities.  43 And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. 44 And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.  45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass .
Job 30:1-31
 1 But now they that are younger than I have me in derision , whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.  2 Yea, whereto might the strength of their hands profit me, in whom old age was perished ? 3 For want and famine they were solitary; fleeing into the wilderness in former time desolate and waste.  4 Who cut up mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots for their meat.  5 They were driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;)  6 To dwell in the clifts of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks.  7 Among the bushes they brayed ; under the nettles they were gathered together . 8 They were children of fools, yea, children of base men: they were viler than the earth.  9 And now am I their song, yea, I am their byword.  10 They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to spit in my face.  11 Because he hath loosed my cord, and afflicted me, they have also let loose the bridle before me. 12 Upon my right hand rise the youth; they push away my feet, and they raise up against me the ways of their destruction.  13 They mar my path, they set forward my calamity , they have no helper . 14 They came upon me as a wide breaking in of waters: in the desolation they rolled themselves upon me. 15 Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.  16 And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me. 17 My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest . 18 By the great force of my disease is my garment changed : it bindeth me about as the collar of my coat.  19 He hath cast me into the mire, and I am become like dust and ashes.  20 I cry unto thee, and thou dost not hear me: I stand up , and thou regardest me not. 21 Thou art become cruel to me: with thy strong hand thou opposest thyself against me. 22 Thou liftest me up to the wind; thou causest me to ride upon it, and dissolvest my substance . 23 For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.  24 Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the grave, though they cry in his destruction.  25 Did not I weep for him that was in trouble ? was not my soul grieved for the poor?  26 When I looked for good, then evil came unto me: and when I waited for light, there came darkness.  27 My bowels boiled , and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me. 28 I went mourning without the sun: I stood up , and I cried in the congregation.  29 I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls . 30 My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.  31 My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep .

April 29, 2014 - King James Version
Acts 13:1-25
 1 Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.  2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted , the Holy Ghost said , Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.  3 And when they had fasted and prayed , and laid their hands on them, they sent them away . 4 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.  5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.  6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:  7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.  8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation ) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.  9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost , set his eyes on him,  10 And said , O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?  11 And now, behold , the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.  12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done , believed , being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.  13 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.  14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down . 15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying , Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on . 16 Then Paul stood up , and beckoning with his hand said , Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience . 17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it.  18 And about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness.  19 And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land to them by lot . 20 And after that he gave unto them judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.  21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.  22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony , and said , I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.  23 Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:  24 When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.  25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said , Whom think ye that I am ? I am not he. But, behold , there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose .
Joshua 18:1-28
 1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them. 2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.  3 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you? 4 Give out from among you three men for each tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise , and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come again to me. 5 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their coasts on the north.  6 Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.  7 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them. 8 And the men arose , and went away : and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying , Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.  9 And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.  10 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.  11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.  12 And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up through the mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven.  13 And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which is Bethel, southward; and the border descended to Atarothadar, near the hill that lieth on the south side of the nether Bethhoron.  14 And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that lieth before Bethhoron southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this was the west quarter.  15 And the south quarter was from the end of Kirjathjearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah:  16 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that lieth before the valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to Enrogel,  17 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to Enshemesh, and went forth toward Geliloth, which is over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,  18 And passed along toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down unto Arabah:  19 And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the south coast.  20 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families.  21 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz,  22 And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,  23 And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,  24 And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their villages:  25 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,  26 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,  27 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,  28 And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.
Joshua 19:1-51
 1 And the second lot came forth to Simeon, even for the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families: and their inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah.  2 And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, or Sheba, and Moladah,  3 And Hazarshual, and Balah, and Azem,  4 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,  5 And Ziklag, and Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusah,  6 And Bethlebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages:  7 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages:  8 And all the villages that were round about these cities to Baalathbeer, Ramath of the south. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families.  9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them. 10 And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families: and the border of their inheritance was unto Sarid:  11 And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before Jokneam;  12 And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to Japhia,  13 And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittahhepher, to Ittahkazin, and goeth out to Remmonmethoar to Neah;  14 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon: and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthahel:  15 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages.  16 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according to their families, these cities with their villages.  17 And the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of Issachar according to their families.  18 And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,  19 And Hapharaim, and Shion, and Anaharath,  20 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,  21 And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;  22 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages.  23 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages.  24 And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families.  25 And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,  26 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel westward, and to Shihorlibnath;  27 And turneth toward the sunrising to Bethdagon, and reacheth to Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthahel toward the north side of Bethemek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left hand,  28 And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great Zidon;  29 And then the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings thereof are at the sea from the coast to Achzib:  30 Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with their villages.  31 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families, these cities with their villages.  32 The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for the children of Naphtali according to their families.  33 And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings thereof were at Jordan:  34 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising . 35 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth,  36 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,  37 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and Enhazor,  38 And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and Bethshemesh; nineteen cities with their villages.  39 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their villages.  40 And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families.  41 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh,  42 And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,  43 And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,  44 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,  45 And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,  46 And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.  47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.  48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.  49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them: 50 According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked , even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein. 51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.
Job 29:1-25
 1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said , 2 Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me; 3 When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;  4 As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle;  5 When the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me; 6 When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;  7 When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street!  8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose , and stood up . 9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.  10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.  11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me: 12 Because I delivered the poor that cried , and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. 13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy . 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.  15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.  16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out . 17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.  18 Then I said , I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.  19 My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.  20 My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.  21 Unto me men gave ear , and waited , and kept silence at my counsel.  22 After my words they spake not again ; and my speech dropped upon them. 23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.  24 If I laughed on them, they believed it not; and the light of my countenance they cast not down . 25 I chose out their way, and sat chief, and dwelt as a king in the army, as one that comforteth the mourners.

Acts 12:1-25
 1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.  2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.  3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)  4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.  5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.  6 And when Herod would have brought him forth , the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.  7 And, behold , the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up , saying , Arise up quickly . And his chains fell off from his hands.  8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself , and bind on thy sandals. And so he did . And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.  9 And he went out , and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.  10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out , and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.  11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said , Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.  12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying . 13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken , named Rhoda.  14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in , and told how Peter stood before the gate.  15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad . But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they , It is his angel.  16 But Peter continued knocking : and when they had opened the door, and saw him , they were astonished . 17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace , declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said , Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed , and went into another place.  18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.  19 And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death . And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode . 20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend , desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's country. 21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.  22 And the people gave a shout , saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.  23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost . 24 But the word of God grew and multiplied . 25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
Joshua 15:1-63
 1 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south coast.  2 And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea, from the bay that looketh southward:  3 And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto Kadeshbarnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a compass to Karkaa:  4 From thence it passed toward Azmon, and went out unto the river of Egypt; and the goings out of that coast were at the sea: this shall be your south coast.  5 And the east border was the salt sea, even unto the end of Jordan. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan:  6 And the border went up to Bethhogla, and passed along by the north of Betharabah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben:  7 And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is before the going up to Adummim, which is on the south side of the river: and the border passed toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the goings out thereof were at Enrogel:  8 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants northward:  9 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which is Kirjathjearim:  10 And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and passed on to Timnah:  11 And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward: and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.  12 And the west border was to the great sea, and the coast thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah round about according to their families.  13 And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, even the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron.  14 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.  15 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher.  16 And Caleb said , He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.  17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.  18 And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she lighted off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou? 19 Who answered , Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether springs.  20 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.  21 And the uttermost cities of the tribe of the children of Judah toward the coast of Edom southward were Kabzeel, and Eder, and Jagur,  22 And Kinah, and Dimonah, and Adadah,  23 And Kedesh, and Hazor, and Ithnan,  24 Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth,  25 And Hazor, Hadattah, and Kerioth, and Hezron, which is Hazor,  26 Amam, and Shema, and Moladah,  27 And Hazargaddah, and Heshmon, and Bethpalet,  28 And Hazarshual, and Beersheba, and Bizjothjah,  29 Baalah, and Iim, and Azem,  30 And Eltolad, and Chesil, and Hormah,  31 And Ziklag, and Madmannah, and Sansannah,  32 And Lebaoth, and Shilhim, and Ain, and Rimmon: all the cities are twenty and nine, with their villages:  33 And in the valley, Eshtaol, and Zoreah, and Ashnah,  34 And Zanoah, and Engannim, Tappuah, and Enam,  35 Jarmuth, and Adullam, Socoh, and Azekah,  36 And Sharaim, and Adithaim, and Gederah, and Gederothaim; fourteen cities with their villages:  37 Zenan, and Hadashah, and Migdalgad,  38 And Dilean, and Mizpeh, and Joktheel,  39 Lachish, and Bozkath, and Eglon,  40 And Cabbon, and Lahmam, and Kithlish,  41 And Gederoth, Bethdagon, and Naamah, and Makkedah; sixteen cities with their villages:  42 Libnah, and Ether, and Ashan,  43 And Jiphtah, and Ashnah, and Nezib,  44 And Keilah, and Achzib, and Mareshah; nine cities with their villages:  45 Ekron, with her towns and her villages:  46 From Ekron even unto the sea, all that lay near Ashdod, with their villages:  47 Ashdod with her towns and her villages, Gaza with her towns and her villages, unto the river of Egypt, and the great sea, and the border thereof: 48 And in the mountains, Shamir, and Jattir, and Socoh,  49 And Dannah, and Kirjathsannah, which is Debir,  50 And Anab, and Eshtemoh, and Anim,  51 And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven cities with their villages:  52 Arab, and Dumah, and Eshean,  53 And Janum, and Bethtappuah, and Aphekah,  54 And Humtah, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, and Zior; nine cities with their villages:  55 Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Juttah,  56 And Jezreel, and Jokdeam, and Zanoah,  57 Cain, Gibeah, and Timnah; ten cities with their villages:  58 Halhul, Bethzur, and Gedor,  59 And Maarath, and Bethanoth, and Eltekon; six cities with their villages:  60 Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim, and Rabbah; two cities with their villages:  61 In the wilderness, Betharabah, Middin, and Secacah,  62 And Nibshan, and the city of Salt, and Engedi; six cities with their villages.  63 As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out : but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.
Joshua 16:1-10
 1 And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from Jordan by Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Bethel,  2 And goeth out from Bethel to Luz, and passeth along unto the borders of Archi to Ataroth,  3 And goeth down westward to the coast of Japhleti, unto the coast of Bethhoron the nether, and to Gezer: and the goings out thereof are at the sea.  4 So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance . 5 And the border of the children of Ephraim according to their families was thus: even the border of their inheritance on the east side was Atarothaddar, unto Bethhoron the upper;  6 And the border went out toward the sea to Michmethah on the north side; and the border went about eastward unto Taanathshiloh, and passed by it on the east to Janohah;  7 And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to Naarath, and came to Jericho, and went out at Jordan.  8 The border went out from Tappuah westward unto the river Kanah; and the goings out thereof were at the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim by their families.  9 And the separate cities for the children of Ephraim were among the inheritance of the children of Manasseh, all the cities with their villages.  10 And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve under tribute.
Joshua 17:1-18
 1 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he was the firstborn of Joseph; to wit, for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.  2 There was also a lot for the rest of the children of Manasseh by their families; for the children of Abiezer, and for the children of Helek, and for the children of Asriel, and for the children of Shechem, and for the children of Hepher, and for the children of Shemida: these were the male children of Manasseh the son of Joseph by their families.  3 But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters: and these are the names of his daughters, Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.  4 And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying , The LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren. Therefore according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them an inheritance among the brethren of their father.  5 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;  6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.  7 And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that lieth before Shechem; and the border went along on the right hand unto the inhabitants of Entappuah.  8 Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;  9 And the coast descended unto the river Kanah, southward of the river: these cities of Ephraim are among the cities of Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of the river, and the outgoings of it were at the sea:  10 Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's, and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on the north, and in Issachar on the east.  11 And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Bethshean and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, even three countries.  12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.  13 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong , that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out . 14 And the children of Joseph spake unto Joshua, saying , Why hast thou given me but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I am a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed me hitherto?  15 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee. 16 And the children of Joseph said , The hill is not enough for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, both they who are of Bethshean and her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel.  17 And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying , Thou art a great people, and hast great power: thou shalt not have one lot only: 18 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down : and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.
Job 28:1-28
 1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it. 2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.  3 He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.  4 The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant ; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up , they are gone away from men.  5 As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.  6 The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.  7 There is a path which no fowl knoweth , and which the vulture's eye hath not seen : 8 The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. 9 He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.  10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.  11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.  12 But where shall wisdom be found ? and where is the place of understanding?  13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.  14 The depth saith , It is not in me: and the sea saith , It is not with me. 15 It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof. 16 It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.  17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.  18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.  19 The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.  20 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?  21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.  22 Destruction and death say , We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.  23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. 24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;  25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.  26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:  27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out . 28 And unto man he said , Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Acts 11:19-30
 19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.  20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.  21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed , and turned unto the Lord.  22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.  23 Who, when he came , and had seen the grace of God, was glad , and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.  24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.  25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:  26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass , that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.  27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.  28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.  29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability , determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:  30 Which also they did , and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
Joshua 13:1-33
 1 Now Joshua was old and stricken in years; and the LORD said unto him, Thou art old and stricken in years, and there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed . 2 This is the land that yet remaineth : all the borders of the Philistines, and all Geshuri,  3 From Sihor, which is before Egypt, even unto the borders of Ekron northward, which is counted to the Canaanite: five lords of the Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites:  4 From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah that is beside the Sidonians, unto Aphek, to the borders of the Amorites:  5 And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising , from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering into Hamath.  6 All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto Misrephothmaim, and all the Sidonians, them will I drive out from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee. 7 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh,  8 With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan eastward, even as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them; 9 From Aroer, that is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain of Medeba unto Dibon;  10 And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, unto the border of the children of Ammon;  11 And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and Maachathites, and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah;  12 All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite , and cast them out . 13 Nevertheless the children of Israel expelled not the Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the Maachathites dwell among the Israelites until this day.  14 Only unto the tribe of Levi he gave none inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as he said unto them. 15 And Moses gave unto the tribe of the children of Reuben inheritance according to their families.  16 And their coast was from Aroer, that is on the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain by Medeba;  17 Heshbon, and all her cities that are in the plain; Dibon, and Bamothbaal, and Bethbaalmeon,  18 And Jahazah, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,  19 And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zarethshahar in the mount of the valley,  20 And Bethpeor, and Ashdothpisgah , and Bethjeshimoth,  21 And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses smote with the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, which were dukes of Sihon, dwelling in the country.  22 Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer , did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them. 23 And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and the border thereof. This was the inheritance of the children of Reuben after their families, the cities and the villages thereof. 24 And Moses gave inheritance unto the tribe of Gad, even unto the children of Gad according to their families.  25 And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that is before Rabbah;  26 And from Heshbon unto Ramathmizpeh, and Betonim; and from Mahanaim unto the border of Debir;  27 And in the valley, Betharam, and Bethnimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, Jordan and his border, even unto the edge of the sea of Chinnereth on the other side Jordan eastward.  28 This is the inheritance of the children of Gad after their families, the cities, and their villages.  29 And Moses gave inheritance unto the half tribe of Manasseh: and this was the possession of the half tribe of the children of Manasseh by their families.  30 And their coast was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which are in Bashan, threescore cities:  31 And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were pertaining unto the children of Machir the son of Manasseh, even to the one half of the children of Machir by their families.  32 These are the countries which Moses did distribute for inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan, by Jericho, eastward.  33 But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance: the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them.
Joshua 14:1-15
 1 And these are the countries which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them. 2 By lot was their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and for the half tribe.  3 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritance among them. 4 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance.  5 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did , and they divided the land.  6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.  7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart.  8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt : but I wholly followed the LORD my God.  9 And Moses sware on that day, saying , Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.  10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive , as he said , these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.  11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out , and to come in . 12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced : if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out , as the LORD said . 13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.  14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.  15 And the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba; which Arba was a great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.
Job 27:1-23
 1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said , 2 As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;  3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;  4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.  5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. 6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go : my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.  7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.  8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained , when God taketh away his soul?  9 Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? 10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?  11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal . 12 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus altogether vain ? 13 This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.  14 If his children be multiplied , it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.  15 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep . 16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;  17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on , and the innocent shall divide the silver.  18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh . 19 The rich man shall lie down , but he shall not be gathered : he openeth his eyes, and he is not. 20 Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.  21 The east wind carrieth him away , and he departeth : and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.  22 For God shall cast upon him, and not spare : he would fain flee out of his hand.  23 Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.

Acts 11:1-18
 1 And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.  2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him,  3 Saying , Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised , and didst eat with them.  4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning , and expounded it by order unto them, saying , 5 I was in the city of Joppa praying : and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend , as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:  6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes , I considered , and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.  7 And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise , Peter; slay and eat . 8 But I said , Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.  9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed , that call not thou common . 10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.  11 And, behold , immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was , sent from Caesarea unto me.  12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting . Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house:  13 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter;  14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved . 15 And as I began to speak , the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.  16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said , John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.  17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ ; what was I, that I could withstand God?  18 When they heard these things, they held their peace , and glorified God, saying , Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
Joshua 11:1-23
 1 And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard those things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,  2 And to the kings that were on the north of the mountains, and of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the valley, and in the borders of Dor on the west,  3 And to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite in the mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpeh.  4 And they went out , they and all their hosts with them, much people, even as the sand that is upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and chariots very many.  5 And when all these kings were met together , they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.  6 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire.  7 So Joshua came , and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them. 8 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining.  9 And Joshua did unto them as the LORD bade him: he houghed their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.  10 And Joshua at that time turned back , and took Hazor, and smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the head of all those kingdoms.  11 And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.  12 And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them, did Joshua take , and smote them with the edge of the sword, and he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded . 13 But as for the cities that stood still in their strength, Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only; that did Joshua burn . 14 And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe.  15 As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses.  16 So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the south country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley, and the plain, and the mountain of Israel, and the valley of the same; 17 Even from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon: and all their kings he took , and smote them, and slew them. 18 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.  19 There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other they took in battle.  20 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly , and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.  21 And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel: Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.  22 There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained . 23 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD said unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from war.
Joshua 12:1-24
 1 Now these are the kings of the land, which the children of Israel smote , and possessed their land on the other side Jordan toward the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto mount Hermon, and all the plain on the east:  2 Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and ruled from Aroer, which is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and from the middle of the river, and from half Gilead, even unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;  3 And from the plain to the sea of Chinneroth on the east, and unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea on the east, the way to Bethjeshimoth; and from the south, under Ashdothpisgah : 4 And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,  5 And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.  6 Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel smite : and Moses the servant of the LORD gave it for a possession unto the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh.  7 And these are the kings of the country which Joshua and the children of Israel smote on this side Jordan on the west, from Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon even unto the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir; which Joshua gave unto the tribes of Israel for a possession according to their divisions;  8 In the mountains, and in the valleys, and in the plains, and in the springs, and in the wilderness, and in the south country; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites:  9 The king of Jericho, one; the king of Ai, which is beside Bethel, one;  10 The king of Jerusalem, one; the king of Hebron, one;  11 The king of Jarmuth, one; the king of Lachish, one;  12 The king of Eglon, one; the king of Gezer, one;  13 The king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one;  14 The king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one;  15 The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one;  16 The king of Makkedah, one; the king of Bethel, one;  17 The king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one;  18 The king of Aphek, one; the king of Lasharon, one;  19 The king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;  20 The king of Shimronmeron, one; the king of Achshaph, one;  21 The king of Taanach, one; the king of Megiddo, one;  22 The king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam of Carmel, one;  23 The king of Dor in the coast of Dor, one; the king of the nations of Gilgal, one;  24 The king of Tirzah, one: all the kings thirty and one.
Job 26:1-14
 1 But Job answered and said , 2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?  3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?  4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee? 5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. 6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.  7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.  8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. 9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. 10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.  11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.  12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.  13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.  14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand ?

Acts 10:34-48
 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said , Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:  35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.  36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)  37 That word, I say, ye know , which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached ; 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good , and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.  39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:  40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly ; 41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.  42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.  43 To him give all the prophets witness , that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.  44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.  45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished , as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.  46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,  47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized , which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?  48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
Joshua 9:1-27
 1 And it came to pass, when all the kings which were on this side Jordan, in the hills, and in the valleys, and in all the coasts of the great sea over against Lebanon, the Hittite, and the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, heard thereof; 2 That they gathered themselves together, to fight with Joshua and with Israel, with one accord.  3 And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai,  4 They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been ambassadors , and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine bottles, old, and rent , and bound up ; 5 And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and mouldy.  6 And they went to Joshua unto the camp at Gilgal, and said unto him, and to the men of Israel, We be come from a far country: now therefore make ye a league with us. 7 And the men of Israel said unto the Hivites, Peradventure ye dwell among us; and how shall we make a league with you? 8 And they said unto Joshua, We are thy servants. And Joshua said unto them, Who are ye? and from whence come ye? 9 And they said unto him, From a very far country thy servants are come because of the name of the LORD thy God: for we have heard the fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt,  10 And all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites, that were beyond Jordan, to Sihon king of Heshbon, and to Og king of Bashan, which was at Ashtaroth.  11 Wherefore our elders and all the inhabitants of our country spake to us, saying , Take victuals with you for the journey, and go to meet them, and say unto them, We are your servants: therefore now make ye a league with us. 12 This our bread we took hot for our provision out of our houses on the day we came forth to go unto you; but now, behold, it is dry , and it is mouldy:  13 And these bottles of wine, which we filled , were new; and, behold, they be rent : and these our garments and our shoes are become old by reason of the very long journey.  14 And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the LORD.  15 And Joshua made peace with them, and made a league with them, to let them live : and the princes of the congregation sware unto them. 16 And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had made a league with them, that they heard that they were their neighbours, and that they dwelt among them. 17 And the children of Israel journeyed , and came unto their cities on the third day. Now their cities were Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kirjathjearim.  18 And the children of Israel smote them not, because the princes of the congregation had sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel. And all the congregation murmured against the princes.  19 But all the princes said unto all the congregation, We have sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we may not touch them. 20 This we will do to them; we will even let them live , lest wrath be upon us, because of the oath which we sware unto them. 21 And the princes said unto them, Let them live ; but let them be hewers of wood and drawers of water unto all the congregation; as the princes had promised them. 22 And Joshua called for them, and he spake unto them, saying , Wherefore have ye beguiled us, saying , We are very far from you; when ye dwell among us? 23 Now therefore ye are cursed , and there shall none of you be freed from being bondmen, and hewers of wood and drawers of water for the house of my God.  24 And they answered Joshua, and said , Because it was certainly told thy servants, how that the LORD thy God commanded his servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you, therefore we were sore afraid of our lives because of you, and have done this thing.  25 And now, behold, we are in thine hand: as it seemeth good and right unto thee to do unto us, do . 26 And so did he unto them, and delivered them out of the hand of the children of Israel, that they slew them not. 27 And Joshua made them that day hewers of wood and drawers of water for the congregation, and for the altar of the LORD, even unto this day, in the place which he should choose .
Joshua 10:1-43
 1 Now it came to pass, when Adonizedek king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them; 2 That they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all the men thereof were mighty.  3 Wherefore Adonizedek king of Jerusalem sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying , 4 Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon: for it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel.  5 Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together , and went up , they and all their hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it. 6 And the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua to the camp to Gilgal, saying , Slack not thy hand from thy servants; come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us: for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the mountains are gathered together against us. 7 So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour.  8 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. 9 Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night.  10 And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.  11 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died : they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.  12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.  13 And the sun stood still , and the moon stayed , until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies . Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.  14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.  15 And Joshua returned , and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal.  16 But these five kings fled , and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah.  17 And it was told Joshua, saying , The five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah.  18 And Joshua said , Roll great stones upon the mouth of the cave, and set men by it for to keep them: 19 And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies , and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand.  20 And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they were consumed , that the rest which remained of them entered into fenced cities.  21 And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel.  22 Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out those five kings unto me out of the cave.  23 And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto him out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.  24 And it came to pass, when they brought out those kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the captains of the men of war which went with him, Come near , put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near , and put their feet upon the necks of them. 25 And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed , be strong and of good courage : for thus shall the LORD do to all your enemies against whom ye fight . 26 And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening.  27 And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded , and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid , and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day.  28 And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed , them, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho.  29 Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him, unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah:  30 And the LORD delivered it also, and the king thereof, into the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain in it; but did unto the king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho.  31 And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it: 32 And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took it on the second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein, according to all that he had done to Libnah.  33 Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua smote him and his people, until he had left him none remaining.  34 And from Lachish Joshua passed unto Eglon, and all Israel with him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it: 35 And they took it on that day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that were therein he utterly destroyed that day, according to all that he had done to Lachish.  36 And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto Hebron; and they fought against it: 37 And they took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining, according to all that he had done to Eglon; but destroyed it utterly, and all the souls that were therein. 38 And Joshua returned , and all Israel with him, to Debir; and fought against it: 39 And he took it, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed all the souls that were therein; he left none remaining: as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to the king thereof; as he had done also to Libnah, and to her king.  40 So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded . 41 And Joshua smote them from Kadeshbarnea even unto Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon.  42 And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.  43 And Joshua returned , and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal.
Job 25:1-6
 1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said , 2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.  3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise ? 4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?  5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.  6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

Acts 10:1-33
 1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.  3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.  4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said , What is it , Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.  5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:  6 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do . 7 And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed , he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually ; 8 And when he had declared all these things unto them, he sent them to Joppa.  9 On the morrow, as they went on their journey , and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:  10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten : but while they made ready , he fell into a trance,  11 And saw heaven opened , and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:  12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.  13 And there came a voice to him, Rise , Peter; kill , and eat . 14 But Peter said , Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.  15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed , that call not thou common . 16 This was done thrice : and the vessel was received up again into heaven.  17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean , behold , the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate,  18 And called , and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.  19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold , three men seek thee.  20 Arise therefore, and get thee down , and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.  21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said , Behold , I am he whom ye seek : what is the cause wherefore ye are come ? 22 And they said , Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.  23 Then called he them in , and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.  24 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them , and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.  25 And as Peter was coming in , Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. 26 But Peter took him up , saying , Stand up ; I myself also am a man.  27 And as he talked with him, he went in , and found many that were come together . 28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company , or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.  29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for : I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?  30 And Cornelius said , Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold , a man stood before me in bright clothing,  31 And said , Cornelius, thy prayer is heard , and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.  32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh , shall speak unto thee.  33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come . Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.
Joshua 7:1-26
 1 But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against the children of Israel.  2 And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Bethaven, on the east side of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying , Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai.  3 And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the people go up ; but let about two or three thousand men go up and smite Ai; and make not all the people to labour thither; for they are but few.  4 So there went up thither of the people about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai.  5 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted , and became as water.  6 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads.  7 And Joshua said , Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content , and dwelt on the other side Jordan!  8 O Lord, what shall I say , when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies ! 9 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round , and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?  10 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up ; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?  11 Israel hath sinned , and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen , and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.  12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies , but turned their backs before their enemies , because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more , except ye destroy the accursed from among you. 13 Up , sanctify the people, and say , Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies , until ye take away the accursed thing from among you. 14 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man.  15 And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel.  16 So Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought Israel by their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken : 17 And he brought the family of Judah; and he took the family of the Zarhites: and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man; and Zabdi was taken : 18 And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken . 19 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give , I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done ; hide it not from me. 20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said , Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done : 21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. 22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. 23 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.  24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.  25 And Joshua said , Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.  26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called , The valley of Achor, unto this day.
Joshua 8:1-35
 1 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed : take all the people of war with thee, and arise , go up to Ai: see , I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:  2 And thou shalt do to Ai and her king as thou didst unto Jericho and her king: only the spoil thereof, and the cattle thereof, shall ye take for a prey unto yourselves: lay thee an ambush for the city behind it. 3 So Joshua arose , and all the people of war, to go up against Ai: and Joshua chose out thirty thousand mighty men of valour, and sent them away by night.  4 And he commanded them, saying , Behold , ye shall lie in wait against the city, even behind the city: go not very far from the city, but be ye all ready : 5 And I, and all the people that are with me, will approach unto the city: and it shall come to pass, when they come out against us, as at the first, that we will flee before them, 6 (For they will come out after us) till we have drawn them from the city; for they will say , They flee before us, as at the first: therefore we will flee before them. 7 Then ye shall rise up from the ambush , and seize upon the city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand.  8 And it shall be, when ye have taken the city, that ye shall set the city on fire: according to the commandment of the LORD shall ye do . See , I have commanded you. 9 Joshua therefore sent them forth : and they went to lie in ambush, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai: but Joshua lodged that night among the people.  10 And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and numbered the people, and went up , he and the elders of Israel, before the people to Ai.  11 And all the people, even the people of war that were with him, went up , and drew nigh , and came before the city, and pitched on the north side of Ai: now there was a valley between them and Ai.  12 And he took about five thousand men, and set them to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city . 13 And when they had set the people, even all the host that was on the north of the city, and their liers in wait on the west of the city, Joshua went that night into the midst of the valley.  14 And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw it, that they hasted and rose up early , and the men of the city went out against Israel to battle, he and all his people, at a time appointed, before the plain; but he wist not that there were liers in ambush against him behind the city.  15 And Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before them, and fled by the way of the wilderness.  16 And all the people that were in Ai were called together to pursue after them: and they pursued after Joshua, and were drawn away from the city.  17 And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel, that went not out after Israel: and they left the city open , and pursued after Israel.  18 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Stretch out the spear that is in thy hand toward Ai; for I will give it into thine hand. And Joshua stretched out the spear that he had in his hand toward the city.  19 And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran as soon as he had stretched out his hand: and they entered into the city, and took it, and hasted and set the city on fire.  20 And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw , and, behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they had no power to flee this way or that way: and the people that fled to the wilderness turned back upon the pursuers . 21 And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended , then they turned again , and slew the men of Ai.  22 And the other issued out of the city against them; so they were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on that side: and they smote them, so that they let none of them remain or escape.  23 And the king of Ai they took alive, and brought him to Joshua.  24 And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness wherein they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the edge of the sword, until they were consumed , that all the Israelites returned unto Ai, and smote it with the edge of the sword.  25 And so it was, that all that fell that day, both of men and women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai.  26 For Joshua drew not his hand back , wherewith he stretched out the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai.  27 Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD which he commanded Joshua.  28 And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it an heap for ever, even a desolation unto this day.  29 And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide : and as soon as the sun was down , Joshua commanded that they should take his carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the entering of the gate of the city, and raise thereon a great heap of stones, that remaineth unto this day.  30 Then Joshua built an altar unto the LORD God of Israel in mount Ebal,  31 As Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of whole stones, over which no man hath lift up any iron: and they offered thereon burnt offerings unto the LORD, and sacrificed peace offerings.  32 And he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses, which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel.  33 And all Israel, and their elders, and officers , and their judges , stood on this side the ark and on that side before the priests the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, as well the stranger, as he that was born among them; half of them over against mount Gerizim, and half of them over against mount Ebal; as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded before, that they should bless the people of Israel.  34 And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.  35 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded , which Joshua read not before all the congregation of Israel, with the women, and the little ones, and the strangers that were conversant among them.
Job 24:1-25
 1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?  2 Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof. 3 They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge . 4 They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.  5 Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.  6 They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.  7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.  8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.  9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.  10 They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;  11 Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst . 12 Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out : yet God layeth not folly to them. 13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof. 14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.  15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying , No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.  16 In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.  17 For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.  18 He is swift as the waters ; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.  19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned . 20 The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered ; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.  21 He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.  22 He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up , and no man is sure of life.  23 Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth ; yet his eyes are upon their ways.  24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low ; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.  25 And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar , and make my speech nothing worth?

Acts 9:26-43
 26 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.  27 But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.  28 And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem.  29 And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.  30 Which when the brethren knew , they brought him down to Caesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus.  31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified ; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied . 32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda.  33 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy . 34 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole : arise , and make thy bed . And he arose immediately.  35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.  36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did . 37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick , and died : whom when they had washed , they laid her in an upper chamber.  38 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there , they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.  39 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come , they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping , and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made , while she was with them.  40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down , and prayed ; and turning him to the body said , Tabitha, arise . And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up . 41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up , and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive . 42 And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord.  43 And it came to pass , that he tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.
Joshua 5:2-15
 2 At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.  3 And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.  4 And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise : All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.  5 Now all the people that came out were circumcised : but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised . 6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed , because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.  7 And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised : for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way.  8 And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole . 9 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.  10 And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.  11 And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day.  12 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.  13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked , and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?  14 And he said , Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come . And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship , and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?  15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.
Joshua 6:1-27
 1 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out , and none came in . 2 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See , I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.  3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once . Thus shalt thou do six days.  4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.  5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. 6 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD.  7 And he said unto the people, Pass on , and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD.  8 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.  9 And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on , and blowing with the trumpets.  10 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying , Ye shall not shout , nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout ; then shall ye shout . 11 So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about it once : and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.  12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD.  13 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually , and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on , and blowing with the trumpets.  14 And the second day they compassed the city once , and returned into the camp: so they did six days.  15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.  16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout ; for the LORD hath given you the city.  17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live , she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent . 18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed , when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it. 19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the LORD.  20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat , so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.  21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.  22 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her. 23 And the young men that were spies went in , and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel.  24 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.  25 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive , and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.  26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying , Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. 27 So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was noised throughout all the country.
Job 23:1-17
 1 Then Job answered and said , 2 Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.  3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!  4 I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.  5 I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me. 6 Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me. 7 There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be delivered for ever from my judge . 8 Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: 9 On the left hand, where he doth work , but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: 10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.  11 My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept , and not declined . 12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. 13 But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth , even that he doeth . 14 For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him 15 Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider , I am afraid of him. 16 For God maketh my heart soft , and the Almighty troubleth me: 17 Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.

Acts 9:1-25
 1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,  2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.  3 And as he journeyed , he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:  4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?  5 And he said , Who art thou , Lord? And the Lord said , I am Jesus whom thou persecutest : it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.  6 And he trembling and astonished said , Lord, what wilt thou have me to do ? And the Lord said unto him, Arise , and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do . 7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.  8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened , he saw no man: but they led him by the hand , and brought him into Damascus.  9 And he was three days without sight , and neither did eat nor drink . 10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said , Behold , I am here, Lord.  11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise , and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold , he prayeth , 12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in , and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight . 13 Then Ananias answered , Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:  14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.  15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way : for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:  16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake . 17 And Ananias went his way , and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said , Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest , hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight , and be filled with the Holy Ghost.  18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose , and was baptized . 19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened . Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.  20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.  21 But all that heard him were amazed , and said ; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?  22 But Saul increased the more in strength , and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.  23 And after that many days were fulfilled , the Jews took counsel to kill him:  24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.  25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.
Joshua 3:1-17
 1 And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over . 2 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host;  3 And they commanded the people, saying , When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. 4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go : for ye have not passed this way heretofore . 5 And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you. 6 And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying , Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people.  7 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee. 8 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying , When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.  9 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither , and hear the words of the LORD your God.  10 And Joshua said , Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.  11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan.  12 Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man.  13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.  14 And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents, to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people;  15 And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)  16 That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed , and were cut off : and the people passed over right against Jericho.  17 And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.
Joshua 4:1-24
 1 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying , 2 Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a man,  3 And command ye them, saying , Take you hence out of the midst of Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood firm , twelve stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the lodging place, where ye shall lodge this night.  4 Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man:  5 And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take ye up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel:  6 That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying , What mean ye by these stones?  7 Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off : and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever.  8 And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded , and took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. 9 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.  10 For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of Jordan, until every thing was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over . 11 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over , that the ark of the LORD passed over , and the priests, in the presence of the people.  12 And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses spake unto them: 13 About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the LORD unto battle, to the plains of Jericho.  14 On that day the LORD magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his life.  15 And the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying , 16 Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that they come up out of Jordan.  17 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying , Come ye up out of Jordan.  18 And it came to pass, when the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD were come up out of the midst of Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up unto the dry land, that the waters of Jordan returned unto their place, and flowed over all his banks, as they did before.  19 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.  20 And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua pitch in Gilgal.  21 And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying , When your children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying , What mean these stones?  22 Then ye shall let your children know , saying , Israel came over this Jordan on dry land.  23 For the LORD your God dried up the waters of Jordan from before you, until ye were passed over , as the LORD your God did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over : 24 That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever.
Joshua 5:1
 1 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over , that their heart melted , neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.
Job 22:1-30
 1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said , 2 Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself? 3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous ? or is it gain to him, that thou makest thy ways perfect ? 4 Will he reprove thee for fear of thee? will he enter with thee into judgment?  5 Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite?  6 For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing.  7 Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink , and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.  8 But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man dwelt in it. 9 Thou hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken . 10 Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth thee; 11 Or darkness, that thou canst not see ; and abundance of waters cover thee. 12 Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are! 13 And thou sayest , How doth God know ? can he judge through the dark cloud?  14 Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.  15 Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden ? 16 Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood:  17 Which said unto God, Depart from us: and what can the Almighty do for them? 18 Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel of the wicked is far from me. 19 The righteous see it, and are glad : and the innocent laugh them to scorn . 20 Whereas our substance is not cut down , but the remnant of them the fire consumeth . 21 Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace : thereby good shall come unto thee. 22 Receive , I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.  23 If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up , thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.  24 Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.  25 Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.  26 For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.  27 Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.  28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.  29 When men are cast down , then thou shalt say , There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.  30 He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands.

Acts 8:26-40
 26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying , Arise , and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.  27 And he arose and went : and, behold , a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship , 28 Was returning , and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.  29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near , and join thyself to this chariot.  30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said , Understandest thou what thou readest ? 31 And he said , How can I , except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.  32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer , so opened he not his mouth:  33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away : and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.  34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said , I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?  35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.  36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said , See , here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized ? 37 And Philip said , If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest . And he answered and said , I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still : and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.  39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip , that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing . 40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
Joshua 1:1-18
 1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister , saying , 2 Moses my servant is dead ; now therefore arise , go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.  3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon , that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.  4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.  5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage : for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 7 Only be thou strong and very courageous , that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest . 8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous , and then thou shalt have good success . 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage ; be not afraid , neither be thou dismayed : for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest . 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying , 11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying , Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to possess it. 12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying , 13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying , The LORD your God hath given you rest , and hath given you this land.  14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them; 15 Until the LORD have given your brethren rest , as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD'S servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising . 16 And they answered Joshua, saying , All that thou commandest us we will do , and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go . 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.  18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death : only be strong and of a good courage .
Joshua 2:1-24
 1 And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying , Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went , and came into an harlot's house , named Rahab, and lodged there. 2 And it was told the king of Jericho, saying , Behold, there came men in hither to night of the children of Israel to search out the country.  3 And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying , Bring forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for they be come to search out all the country.  4 And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were: 5 And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out : whither the men went I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them. 6 But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof.  7 And the men pursued after them the way to Jordan unto the fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone out , they shut the gate.  8 And before they were laid down , she came up unto them upon the roof;  9 And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. 10 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed . 11 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt , neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. 12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father's house, and give me a true token:  13 And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.  14 And the men answered her, Our life for yours , if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee. 15 Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.  16 And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned : and afterward may ye go your way.  17 And the men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine oath which thou hast made us swear . 18 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by : and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee. 19 And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him. 20 And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear . 21 And she said , According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away , and they departed : and she bound the scarlet line in the window.  22 And they went , and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned : and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not. 23 So the two men returned , and descended from the mountain, and passed over , and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them: 24 And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.
Job 21:1-34
 1 But Job answered and said , 2 Hear diligently my speech, and let this be your consolations.  3 Suffer me that I may speak ; and after that I have spoken , mock on . 4 As for me, is my complaint to man? and if it were so, why should not my spirit be troubled ? 5 Mark me, and be astonished , and lay your hand upon your mouth.  6 Even when I remember I am afraid , and trembling taketh hold on my flesh.  7 Wherefore do the wicked live , become old , yea, are mighty in power?  8 Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.  9 Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them. 10 Their bull gendereth , and faileth not; their cow calveth , and casteth not her calf . 11 They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance . 12 They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ.  13 They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.  14 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.  15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? 16 Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. 17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out ! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.  18 They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away . 19 God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it. 20 His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.  21 For what pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst ? 22 Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high . 23 One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.  24 His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.  25 And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.  26 They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them. 27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me. 28 For ye say , Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?  29 Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,  30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.  31 Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done ? 32 Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.  33 The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him, and every man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him. 34 How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?

Acts 8:1-25
 1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.  2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.  3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.  4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.  5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.  6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake , hearing and seeing the miracles which he did . 7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies , and that were lame, were healed . 8 And there was great joy in that city.  9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery , and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:  10 To whom they all gave heed , from the least to the greatest, saying , This man is the great power of God.  11 And to him they had regard , because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.  12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized , both men and women.  13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized , he continued with Philip, and wondered , beholding the miracles and signs which were done . 14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:  15 Who, when they were come down , prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:  16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)  17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.  18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given , he offered them money,  19 Saying , Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.  20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.  21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.  22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.  23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.  24 Then answered Simon, and said , Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.  25 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.
Deuteronomy 33:1-29
 1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.  2 And he said , The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them. 3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.  4 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.  5 And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together.  6 Let Reuben live , and not die ; and let not his men be few.  7 And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said , Hear , LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him unto his people: let his hands be sufficient for him; and be thou an help to him from his enemies.  8 And of Levi he said , Let thy Thummim and thy Urim be with thy holy one, whom thou didst prove at Massah, and with whom thou didst strive at the waters of Meribah;  9 Who said unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen him; neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his own children: for they have observed thy word, and kept thy covenant.  10 They shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law: they shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon thine altar.  11 Bless , LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands: smite through the loins of them that rise against him, and of them that hate him, that they rise not again . 12 And of Benjamin he said , The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; and the LORD shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.  13 And of Joseph he said , Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath , 14 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,  15 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills,  16 And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.  17 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.  18 And of Zebulun he said , Rejoice , Zebulun, in thy going out ; and, Issachar, in thy tents.  19 They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.  20 And of Gad he said , Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head.  21 And he provided the first part for himself, because there, in a portion of the lawgiver , was he seated ; and he came with the heads of the people, he executed the justice of the LORD, and his judgments with Israel.  22 And of Dan he said , Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.  23 And of Naphtali he said , O Naphtali, satisfied with favour, and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west and the south.  24 And of Asher he said , Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil.  25 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be. 26 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.  27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say , Destroy them. 28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.  29 Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
Deuteronomy 34:1-12
 1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,  2 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,  3 And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees , unto Zoar.  4 And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying , I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither. 5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.  6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.  7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim , nor his natural force abated . 8 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended . 9 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.  10 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,  11 In all the signs and the wonders, which the LORD sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,  12 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.
Job 20:1-29
 1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said , 2 Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer , and for this I make haste . 3 I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer . 4 Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,  5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?  6 Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;  7 Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say , Where is he? 8 He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found : yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.  9 The eye also which saw him shall see him no more ; neither shall his place any more behold him. 10 His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.  11 His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.  12 Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;  13 Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:  14 Yet his meat in his bowels is turned , it is the gall of asps within him. 15 He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again : God shall cast them out of his belly.  16 He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him. 17 He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.  18 That which he laboured for shall he restore , and shall not swallow it down : according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein. 19 Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not; 20 Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired . 21 There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.  22 In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits : every hand of the wicked shall come upon him. 23 When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.  24 He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through . 25 It is drawn , and cometh out of the body; yea, the glittering sword cometh out of his gall: terrors are upon him. 26 All darkness shall be hid in his secret places : a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.  27 The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him. 28 The increase of his house shall depart , and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.  29 This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.

Acts 7:23-60
 23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.  24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong , he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed , and smote the Egyptian:  25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.  26 And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove , and would have set them at one again, saying , Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?  27 But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away , saying , Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?  28 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?  29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.  30 And when forty years were expired , there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.  31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him,  32 Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled , and durst not behold . 33 Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.  34 I have seen , I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come , I will send thee into Egypt.  35 This Moses whom they refused , saying , Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.  36 He brought them out , after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.  37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear . 38 This is he , that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:  39 To whom our fathers would not obey , but thrust him from them , and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,  40 Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.  41 And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.  42 Then God turned , and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?  43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.  44 Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed , speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen . 45 Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;  46 Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.  47 But Solomon built him an house.  48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,  49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool : what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?  50 Hath not my hand made all these things?  51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.  52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted ? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:  53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it. 54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart , and they gnashed on him with their teeth.  55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,  56 And said , Behold , I see the heavens opened , and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.  57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,  58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.  59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying , Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.  60 And he kneeled down , and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep .
Acts 8:1
 1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
Deuteronomy 31:1-30
 1 And Moses went and spake these words unto all Israel.  2 And he said unto them, I am an hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in : also the LORD hath said unto me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan.  3 The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, and he will destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess them: and Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said . 4 And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to Og, kings of the Amorites, and unto the land of them, whom he destroyed . 5 And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded you. 6 Be strong and of a good courage , fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 7 And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage : for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it. 8 And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed . 9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.  10 And Moses commanded them, saying , At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,  11 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose , thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing.  12 Gather the people together , men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear , and that they may learn , and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:  13 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear , and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it. 14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that thou must die : call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge . And Moses and Joshua went , and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.  15 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.  16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up , and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. 17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured , and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us? 18 And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought , in that they are turned unto other gods.  19 Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.  20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat ; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.  21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about , even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware . 22 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it the children of Israel.  23 And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge , and said , Be strong and of a good courage : for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee. 24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished , 25 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying , 26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee. 27 For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?  28 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers , that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. 29 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.  30 And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended .
Deuteronomy 32:1-52
 1 Give ear , O ye heavens, and I will speak ; and hear , O earth, the words of my mouth.  2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:  3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.  4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. 5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.  6 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee? 7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. 8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance , when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.  9 For the LORD'S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.  10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about , he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.  11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:  12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. 13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;  14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.  15 But Jeshurun waxed fat , and kicked : thou art waxen fat , thou art grown thick , thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.  16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger . 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up , whom your fathers feared not. 18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful , and hast forgotten God that formed thee. 19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.  20 And he said , I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.  21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.  22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.  23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. 24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.  25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.  26 I said , I would scatter them into corners , I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:  27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy , lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely , and lest they should say , Our hand is high , and the LORD hath not done all this. 28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. 29 O that they were wise , that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!  30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight , except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up ? 31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.  32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:  33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.  34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?  35 To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste . 36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone , and there is none shut up , or left . 37 And he shall say , Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted , 38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.  39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill , and I make alive ; I wound , and I heal : neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.  40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say , I live for ever.  41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. 42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy . 43 Rejoice , O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.  44 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.  45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel:  46 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do , all the words of this law.  47 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it. 48 And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying , 49 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:  50 And die in the mount whither thou goest up , and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:  51 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh , in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.  52 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.
Job 19:1-29
 1 Then Job answered and said , 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?  3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me. 4 And be it indeed that I have erred , mine error remaineth with myself. 5 If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:  6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.  7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard : I cry aloud , but there is no judgment.  8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass , and he hath set darkness in my paths.  9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.  10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone : and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.  11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.  12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.  13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me. 14 My kinsfolk have failed , and my familiar friends have forgotten me. 15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger : I am an alien in their sight.  16 I called my servant, and he gave me no answer ; I intreated him with my mouth.  17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.  18 Yea, young children despised me; I arose , and they spake against me. 19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me. 20 My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.  21 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. 22 Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?  23 Oh that my words were now written ! oh that they were printed in a book!  24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!  25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:  26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:  27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold , and not another ; though my reins be consumed within me. 28 But ye should say , Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me? 29 Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment .

Acts 7:1-22
 1 Then said the high priest, Are these things so?  2 And he said , Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken ; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,  3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.  4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead , he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell . 5 And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.  6 And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage , and entreat them evil four hundred years.  7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge , said God: and after that shall they come forth , and serve me in this place.  8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.  9 And the patriarchs, moved with envy , sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,  10 And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.  11 Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and great affliction: and our fathers found no sustenance.  12 But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.  13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.  14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred , threescore and fifteen souls.  15 So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died , he, and our fathers,  16 And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.  17 But when the time of the promise drew nigh , which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,  18 Till another king arose , which knew not Joseph.  19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live . 20 In which time Moses was born , and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father's house three months:  21 And when he was cast out , Pharaoh's daughter took him up , and nourished him for her own son.  22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
Deuteronomy 29:1-29
 1 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.  2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;  3 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen , the signs, and those great miracles:  4 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive , and eyes to see , and ears to hear , unto this day.  5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.  6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.  7 And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them: 8 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.  9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do . 10 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers , with all the men of Israel,  11 Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:  12 That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the LORD thy God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this day:  13 That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.  14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;  15 But with him that standeth here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day:  16 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by ; 17 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:) 18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;  19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying , I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:  20 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.  21 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:  22 So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say , when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it; 23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown , nor beareth , nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:  24 Even all nations shall say , Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?  25 Then men shall say , Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:  26 For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them: 27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:  28 And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.  29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Deuteronomy 30:1-20
 1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee, 2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;  3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. 4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: 5 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed , and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good , and multiply thee above thy fathers.  6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.  7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies , and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee. 8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.  9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:  10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.  11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.  12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say , Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say , Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. 15 See , I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;  16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply : and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. 17 But if thine heart turn away , so that thou wilt not hear , but shalt be drawn away , and worship other gods, and serve them; 18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish , and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. 19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live : 20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
Job 18:1-21
 1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said , 2 How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark , and afterwards we will speak . 3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?  4 He teareth himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?  5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out , and the spark of his fire shall not shine . 6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him. 7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened , and his own counsel shall cast him down . 8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.  9 The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him. 10 The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.  11 Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.  12 His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.  13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.  14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.  15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.  16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off . 17 His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street . 18 He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.  19 He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.  20 They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted . 21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.

Acts 6:1-15
 1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied , there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.  2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said , It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.  3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report , full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.  4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.  5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:  6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed , they laid their hands on them.  7 And the word of God increased ; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.  8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.  9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.  10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake . 11 Then they suborned men, which said , We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.  12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,  13 And set up false witnesses, which said , This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:  14 For we have heard him say , that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.  15 And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.
Deuteronomy 28:1-68
 1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:  2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.  3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.  4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.  5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.  6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in , and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out . 7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.  8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.  10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee. 11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee. 12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow . 13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: 14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them. 15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: 16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.  17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.  18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.  19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in , and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out . 20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do , until thou be destroyed , and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. 21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. 22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish . 23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.  24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed . 25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies : thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.  26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away . 27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods , and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed . 28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:  29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. 30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies , and thou shalt have none to rescue them. 32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look , and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.  33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up ; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:  34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see . 35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed , from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.  36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known ; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.  37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee. 38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in ; for the locust shall consume it. 39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. 40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit. 41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.  42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume . 43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.  44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.  45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed ; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: 46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.  47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. 49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth ; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand ; 50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:  51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed : which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee. 52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down , wherein thou trustedst , throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee. 53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee: 54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave : 55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat : because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.  56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,  57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear : for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.  58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;  59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful , and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance , and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance . 60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. 61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed . 62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.  63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good , and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought ; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it. 64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known , even wood and stone.  65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease , neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:  66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:  67 In the morning thou shalt say , Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say , Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear , and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see . 68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again : and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
Job 17:1-16
 1 My breath is corrupt , my days are extinct , the graves are ready for me. 2 Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation ? 3 Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me? 4 For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them. 5 He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail . 6 He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.  7 Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.  8 Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.  9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.  10 But as for you all, do ye return , and come now : for I cannot find one wise man among you. 11 My days are past , my purposes are broken off , even the thoughts of my heart.  12 They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.  13 If I wait , the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.  14 I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.  15 And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it? 16 They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

Acts 5:17-42
 17 Then the high priest rose up , and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,  18 And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.  19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth , and said , 20 Go , stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.  21 And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning , and taught . But the high priest came , and they that were with him, and called the council together , and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought . 22 But when the officers came , and found them not in the prison, they returned , and told , 23 Saying , The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened , we found no man within.  24 Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow . 25 Then came one and told them, saying , Behold , the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.  26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned . 27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,  28 Saying , Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold , ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.  29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said , We ought to obey God rather than men.  30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.  31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.  32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.  33 When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.  34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;  35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.  36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves : who was slain ; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered , and brought to nought.  37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished ; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed . 38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone : for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought : 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.  40 And to him they agreed : and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go . 41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.  42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
Deuteronomy 25:1-19
 1 If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.  2 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten , that the judge shall cause him to lie down , and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.  3 Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed : lest, if he should exceed , and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee. 4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. 5 If brethren dwell together, and one of them die , and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger : her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her. 6 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead , that his name be not put out of Israel.  7 And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say , My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother . 8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say , I like not to take her; 9 Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say , So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother's house.  10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed . 11 When men strive together one with another , and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets:  12 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her. 13 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights , a great and a small.  14 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures , a great and a small.  15 But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 16 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.  17 Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;  18 How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.  19 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.
Deuteronomy 26:1-19
 1 And it shall be, when thou art come in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and possessest it, and dwellest therein; 2 That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there. 3 And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the LORD thy God, that I am come unto the country which the LORD sware unto our fathers for to give us. 4 And the priest shall take the basket out of thine hand, and set it down before the altar of the LORD thy God.  5 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous:  6 And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage:  7 And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression:  8 And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders:  9 And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, even a land that floweth with milk and honey.  10 And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land, which thou, O LORD, hast given me. And thou shalt set it before the LORD thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God:  11 And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger that is among you. 12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled ; 13 Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them: 14 I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead : but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me. 15 Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey.  16 This day the LORD thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.  17 Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice:  18 And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments;  19 And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made , in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken .
Deuteronomy 27:1-26
 1 And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying , Keep all the commandments which I command you this day.  2 And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, that thou shalt set thee up great stones, and plaister them with plaister:  3 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over , that thou mayest go in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee. 4 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, that ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaister them with plaister . 5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them. 6 Thou shalt build the altar of the LORD thy God of whole stones: and thou shalt offer burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD thy God:  7 And thou shalt offer peace offerings, and shalt eat there, and rejoice before the LORD thy God.  8 And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly . 9 And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel, saying , Take heed , and hearken , O Israel; this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God.  10 Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.  11 And Moses charged the people the same day, saying , 12 These shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people, when ye are come over Jordan; Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin:  13 And these shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse; Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.  14 And the Levites shall speak , and say unto all the men of Israel with a loud voice,  15 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say , Amen.  16 Cursed be he that setteth light by his father or his mother. And all the people shall say , Amen.  17 Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour's landmark. And all the people shall say , Amen.  18 Cursed be he that maketh the blind to wander out of the way. And all the people shall say , Amen.  19 Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say , Amen.  20 Cursed be he that lieth with his father's wife; because he uncovereth his father's skirt. And all the people shall say , Amen.  21 Cursed be he that lieth with any manner of beast. And all the people shall say , Amen.  22 Cursed be he that lieth with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother. And all the people shall say , Amen.  23 Cursed be he that lieth with his mother in law . And all the people shall say , Amen.  24 Cursed be he that smiteth his neighbour secretly. And all the people shall say , Amen.  25 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person . And all the people shall say , Amen.  26 Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say , Amen.
Job 16:1-22
 1 Then Job answered and said , 2 I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all. 3 Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest ? 4 I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you. 5 But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief. 6 Though I speak , my grief is not asswaged : and though I forbear , what am I eased ? 7 But now he hath made me weary : thou hast made desolate all my company.  8 And thou hast filled me with wrinkles , which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.  9 He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me. 10 They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me. 11 God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.  12 I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder : he hath also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces , and set me up for his mark.  13 His archers compass me round about , he cleaveth my reins asunder , and doth not spare ; he poureth out my gall upon the ground.  14 He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant.  15 I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust.  16 My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death;  17 Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure.  18 O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place.  19 Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high.  20 My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto God.  21 O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour ! 22 When a few years are come , then I shall go the way whence I shall not return .

April 15, 2014 - King James Version
Acts 5:1-16
 1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,  2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.  3 But Peter said , Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?  4 Whiles it remained , was it not thine own ? and after it was sold , was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.  5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down , and gave up the ghost : and great fear came on all them that heard these things.  6 And the young men arose , wound him up , and carried him out , and buried him. 7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done , came in . 8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said , Yea, for so much.  9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold , the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out . 10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost : and the young men came in , and found her dead, and, carrying her forth , buried her by her husband.  11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.  12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.  13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.  14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)  15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.  16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
Deuteronomy 23:1-25
 1 He that is wounded in the stones , or hath his privy member cut off , shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.  2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.  3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:  4 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee 5 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee. 6 Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.  7 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.  8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the LORD in their third generation.  9 When the host goeth forth against thine enemies , then keep thee from every wicked thing.  10 If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:  11 But it shall be, when evening cometh on , he shall wash himself with water: and when the sun is down , he shall come into the camp again. 12 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad:  13 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee: 14 For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.  15 Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant which is escaped from his master unto thee: 16 He shall dwell with thee, even among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it liketh him best: thou shalt not oppress him. 17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.  18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore , or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.  19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury  20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury ; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury : that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it. 21 When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee 22 But if thou shalt forbear to vow , it shall be no sin in thee. 23 That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform ; even a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the LORD thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth.  24 When thou comest into thy neighbour's vineyard, then thou mayest eat grapes thy fill at thine own pleasure; but thou shalt not put any in thy vessel.  25 When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbour, then thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand; but thou shalt not move a sickle unto thy neighbour's standing corn.
Deuteronomy 24:1-22
 1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.  2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. 3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die , which took her to be his wife;  4 Her former husband, which sent her away , may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled ; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin , which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.  5 When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken . 6 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge : for he taketh a man's life to pledge . 7 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die ; and thou shalt put evil away from among you. 8 Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so ye shall observe to do . 9 Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.  10 When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.  11 Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee. 12 And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:  13 In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down , that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.  14 Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy gates:  15 At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee. 16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.  17 Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge : 18 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.  19 When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.  20 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.  21 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.  22 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
Job 15:1-35
 1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said , 2 Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?  3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good ? 4 Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.  5 For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.  6 Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee. 7 Art thou the first man that was born ? or wast thou made before the hills?  8 Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself? 9 What knowest thou, that we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us? 10 With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.  11 Are the consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee? 12 Why doth thine heart carry thee away ? and what do thy eyes wink at , 13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?  14 What is man, that he should be clean ? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous ? 15 Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.  16 How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?  17 I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare ; 18 Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it: 19 Unto whom alone the earth was given , and no stranger passed among them. 20 The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.  21 A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. 22 He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword.  23 He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.  24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid ; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.  25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty.  26 He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers:  27 Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks.  28 And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth , which are ready to become heaps.  29 He shall not be rich , neither shall his substance continue , neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.  30 He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away . 31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.  32 It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green.  33 He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive.  34 For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.  35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.

Acts 4:23-37
 23 And being let go , they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.  24 And when they heard that , they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said , Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:  25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said , Why did the heathen rage , and the people imagine vain things?  26 The kings of the earth stood up , and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.  27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed , both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together , 28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done . 29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,  30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.  31 And when they had prayed , the place was shaken where they were assembled together ; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.  32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.  33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.  34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them , and brought the prices of the things that were sold , 35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need . 36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is , being interpreted , The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,  37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
Deuteronomy 21:1-23
 1 If one be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field, and it be not known who hath slain him: 2 Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth , and they shall measure unto the cities which are round about him that is slain:  3 And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer , which hath not been wrought with , and which hath not drawn in the yoke;  4 And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer unto a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown , and shall strike off the heifer's neck there in the valley:  5 And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near ; for them the LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the name of the LORD; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried: 6 And all the elders of that city, that are next unto the slain man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley:  7 And they shall answer and say , Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it. 8 Be merciful , O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed , and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them. 9 So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.  10 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies , and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive,  11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;  12 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails;  13 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband , and she shall be thy wife.  14 And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast humbled her. 15 If a man have two wives, one beloved , and another hated , and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated ; and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated:  16 Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated , which is indeed the firstborn:  17 But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath : for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his. 18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: 19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;  20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious , he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton , and a drunkard . 21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die : so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear , and fear . 22 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death , and thou hang him on a tree:  23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled , which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
Deuteronomy 22:1-30
 1 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray , and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them again unto thy brother.  2 And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him not, then thou shalt bring it unto thine own house, and it shall be with thee until thy brother seek after it, and thou shalt restore it to him again . 3 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's, which he hath lost , and thou hast found , shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself. 4 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt surely help him to lift them up again . 5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.  6 If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young:  7 But thou shalt in any wise let the dam go , and take the young to thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days.  8 When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence. 9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown , and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled . 10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.  11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.  12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself. 13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say , I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:  15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:  16 And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying , I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.  18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; 19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.  20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:  21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die : because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you. 22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die , both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.  23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; 24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die ; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you. 25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die : 26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:  27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried , and there was none to save her. 28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed , and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found ; 29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.  30 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor discover his father's skirt.
Job 14:1-22
 1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.  2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down : he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. 3 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? 4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.  5 Seeing his days are determined , the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass ; 6 Turn from him, that he may rest , till he shall accomplish , as an hireling, his day.  7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down , that it will sprout again , and that the tender branch thereof will not cease . 8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;  9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud , and bring forth boughs like a plant.  10 But man dieth , and wasteth away : yea, man giveth up the ghost , and where is he? 11 As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up : 12 So man lieth down , and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake , nor be raised out of their sleep.  13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret , until thy wrath be past , that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man die , shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait , till my change come . 15 Thou shalt call , and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.  16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin?  17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity.  18 And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought , and the rock is removed out of his place.  19 The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man.  20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth : thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away . 21 His sons come to honour , and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low , but he perceiveth it not of them. 22 But his flesh upon him shall have pain , and his soul within him shall mourn .

Acts 3:1-26
 1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried , whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;  3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.  4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said , Look on us.  5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.  6 Then Peter said , Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk . 7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up : and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength . 8 And he leaping up stood , and walked , and entered with them into the temple, walking , and leaping , and praising God.  9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:  10 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.  11 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering.  12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk ? 13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up , and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go . 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;  15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.  16 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong , whom ye see and know : yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.  17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.  18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer , he hath so fulfilled . 19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted , that your sins may be blotted out , when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;  20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:  21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.  22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers , A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.  23 And it shall come to pass , that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.  24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken , have likewise foretold of these days.  25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed . 26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
Deuteronomy 17:1-20
 1 Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness : for that is an abomination unto the LORD thy God.  2 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant,  3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded ; 4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently , and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain , that such abomination is wrought in Israel:  5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die . 6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death ; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death . 7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death , and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you. 8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise , and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose ; 9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire ; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:  10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence , which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee: 11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do : thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.  12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge , even that man shall die : and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.  13 And all the people shall hear , and fear , and do no more presumptuously . 14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say , I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me; 15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose : one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.  16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.  17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.  18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:  19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: 20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
Deuteronomy 18:1-22
 1 The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.  2 Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the LORD is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them. 3 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.  4 The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him. 5 For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever.  6 And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned , and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the LORD shall choose ; 7 Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the LORD.  8 They shall have like portions to eat , beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony.  9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times , or an enchanter , or a witch , 11 Or a charmer , or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer . 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.  14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess , hearkened unto observers of times , and unto diviners : but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do. 15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken ; 16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying , Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. 17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken . 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. 20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak , or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die . 21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken ? 22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass , that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken , but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Job 12:1-25
 1 And Job answered and said , 2 No doubt but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you. 3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these? 4 I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn.  5 He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.  6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper , and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly. 7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: 8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 9 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? 10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind . 11 Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?  12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.  13 With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.  14 Behold, he breaketh down , and it cannot be built again : he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening . 15 Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up : also he sendeth them out , and they overturn the earth.  16 With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his. 17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools . 18 He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.  19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.  20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty , and taketh away the understanding of the aged.  21 He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.  22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.  23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again. 24 He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.  25 They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.

Acts 4:1-22
 1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,  2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.  3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.  4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed ; and the number of the men was about five thousand.  5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,  6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.  7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked , By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?  8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,  9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole ; 10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified , whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.  11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders , which is become the head of the corner.  12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved . 13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled ; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.  14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it . 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,  16 Saying , What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. 17 But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.  18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.  19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye . 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard . 21 So when they had further threatened them , they let them go , finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done . 22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed .
Deuteronomy 19:1-21
 1 When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land the LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;  2 Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it. 3 Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit , into three parts , that every slayer may flee thither. 4 And this is the case of the slayer , which shall flee thither, that he may live : Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly , whom he hated not in time past;  5 As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour, that he die ; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live : 6 Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer , while his heart is hot , and overtake him, because the way is long , and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past.  7 Wherefore I command thee, saying , Thou shalt separate three cities for thee. 8 And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give unto thy fathers;  9 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three:  10 That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee. 11 But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die , and fleeth into one of these cities:  12 Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die . 13 Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee. 14 Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it. 15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth : at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established . 16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;  17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges , which shall be in those days;  18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition : and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;  19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you. 20 And those which remain shall hear , and fear , and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you. 21 And thine eye shall not pity ; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
Deuteronomy 20:1-20
 1 When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies , and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.  2 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people,  3 And shall say unto them, Hear , O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies : let not your hearts faint , fear not, and do not tremble , neither be ye terrified because of them; 4 For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies , to save you. 5 And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying , What man is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it. 6 And what man is he that hath planted a vineyard, and hath not yet eaten of it? let him also go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man eat of it. 7 And what man is there that hath betrothed a wife, and hath not taken her? let him go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man take her. 8 And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say , What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted ? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren's heart faint as well as his heart.  9 And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking unto the people, that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people.  10 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it. 11 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee. 12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it: 13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:  14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies , which the LORD thy God hath given thee. 15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.  16 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:  17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee: 18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God.  19 When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man's life) to employ them in the siege : 20 Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down ; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued .
Job 13:1-28
 1 Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it. 2 What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you. 3 Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.  4 But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.  5 O that ye would altogether hold your peace ! and it should be your wisdom.  6 Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.  7 Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him? 8 Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?  9 Is it good that he should search you out ? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him? 10 He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.  11 Shall not his excellency make you afraid ? and his dread fall upon you? 12 Your remembrances are like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.  13 Hold your peace , let me alone, that I may speak , and let come on me what will. 14 Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?  15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. 16 He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him. 17 Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.  18 Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified . 19 Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue , I shall give up the ghost . 20 Only do not two things unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee.  21 Withdraw thine hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid . 22 Then call thou, and I will answer : or let me speak , and answer thou me. 23 How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.  24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy ? 25 Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro ? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?  26 For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.  27 Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.  28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth , as a garment that is moth eaten .

April 11, 2014 - King James Version
Acts 2:14-47
14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 15 For these are not drunken , as ye suppose , seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy , and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams : 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy : 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come : 21 And it shall come to pass , that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved . 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know : 23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken , and by wicked hands have crucified and slain : 24 Whom God hath raised up , having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. 25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved : 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice , and my tongue was glad ; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried , and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. 32 This Jesus hath God raised up , whereof we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted , and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear . 34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool . 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified , both Lord and Christ. 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do ? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent , and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off , even as many as the Lord our God shall call . 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort , saying , Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized : and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together , and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved .
Deuteronomy 15:1-23
1 At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release. 3 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release ; 4 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it: 5 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day. 6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow ; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee. 7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: 8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth . 9 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying , The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand ; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee. 10 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. 11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying , Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land. 12 And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee. 13 And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him go away empty: 14 Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the LORD thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him. 15 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee this thing to day. 16 And it shall be, if he say unto thee, I will not go away from thee; because he loveth thee and thine house, because he is well with thee; 17 Then thou shalt take an aul, and thrust it through his ear unto the door, and he shall be thy servant for ever. And also unto thy maidservant thou shalt do likewise. 18 It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou sendest him away free from thee; for he hath been worth a double hired servant to thee, in serving thee six years: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all that thou doest . 19 All the firstling males that come of thy herd and of thy flock thou shalt sanctify unto the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work with the firstling of thy bullock, nor shear the firstling of thy sheep. 20 Thou shalt eat it before the LORD thy God year by year in the place which the LORD shall choose , thou and thy household. 21 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God. 22 Thou shalt eat it within thy gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart. 23 Only thou shalt not eat the blood thereof; thou shalt pour it upon the ground as water.
Deuteronomy 16:1-22
1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. 2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there. 3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life. 4 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning. 5 Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee: 6 But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt. 7 And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose : and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents. 8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work therein. 9 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn. 10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto the LORD thy God, according as the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: 11 And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there. 12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes. 13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine: 14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates. 15 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose : because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice. 16 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose ; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty: 17 Every man shall give as he is able , according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee. 18 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment. 19 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 20 That which is altogether just shalt thou follow , that thou mayest live , and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 21 Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee. 22 Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy God hateth .
Job 11:1-20
1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said , 2 Should not the multitude of words be answered ? and should a man full of talk be justified ? 3 Should thy lies make men hold their peace ? and when thou mockest , shall no man make thee ashamed ? 4 For thou hast said , My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes. 5 But oh that God would speak , and open his lips against thee; 6 And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth. 7 Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? 8 It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do ? deeper than hell; what canst thou know ? 9 The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea. 10 If he cut off , and shut up , or gather together , then who can hinder him? 11 For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it? 12 For vain man would be wise , though man be born like a wild ass's colt. 13 If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him; 14 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away , and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles. 15 For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast , and shalt not fear : 16 Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away : 17 And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth , thou shalt be as the morning. 18 And thou shalt be secure , because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety. 19 Also thou shalt lie down , and none shall make thee afraid ; yea, many shall make suit unto thee. 20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail , and they shall not escape , and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
